“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”
― Napoleon Hill
Appreciate Harsh Adversity
After I left my job in 2016 to start my venture of helping others, I had the intention of making it grow into a profitable business.
But as I have discovered, rarely does life unfold the way I want it to. It has mysterious and insightful methods of telling me what I need to learn. It’s my arena for growth.
Despite not creating a sustainable income within my projected timeline, I gained numerous important skills and lessons. On top of doing meaningful work, I acquired valuable wisdom and made new relationships.
Although I was confronted with difficult challenges, I wanted to continue. As a result, I decided to grow my business on the side while working full time.
This was not a sign of defeat, but simply a pivot. That’s because my definition of failure would be giving on my dream of doing what I love while helping others.
Not letting my ego and others’ opinions control me, I found another way to generate a steady income. Having the peace of mind knowing all my bills are paid, I can use the free time outside of my job to focus on my venture.
This winning strategy allows me to help myself and others.
While being in the pit of struggles, I was tempted to give up because that would be the easier thing to do. However, my deep sense of purpose prevailed and enabled me to persevere.
If you have a deep and burning desire for something, you must be willing to fight for it even if you don’t know what the outcome might be.
Trust the process, and more importantly, believe in yourself.
You can be your biggest ally or enemy. Choose the former and let it be your strongest proponent.
Give yourself the best chance to achieve your goals and dreams by first learning to help yourself. That way, you can create opportunities for others to do the same.
Your network of relationships will be an invaluable asset when trying to achieve your goals. They will build connections and possibilities through introductions. As a result, they can propel you forward to greater heights.
And in times of need, they can be your triumphant supporters in solving problems. By working together and assisting each other, you both mutually benefit from the relationship.
Understand this important fact:
No matter what happens in life, you can handle it.
The time it requires to overcome your unique challenges varies depends on your experience, knowledge, and support from others.
As you conquer more obstacles, you’ll gain more trust and confidence in yourself to confront uncertainty and drawbacks.
